-new rasmussen polling from ohio, florida, and virginia. take a look at the numbers. the polls are showing an extremely tight race between these two candidates. in ohio, the president is up by one point. fifty to 49%. governor romney is ahead 49%, he was shown behind to in florida and now he is ahead to in florida. the state of virginia, 49 to 48%. big news that is just breaking right now. that is where he, i should say, racked up another big story today. the september jobs report. the labor department says that 114,000 jobs were created last month, but the unemployment rate sharply declining to 7.8%. that is the lowest number in nearly four years. certainly some welcome news for team obama. a liberal economist cautioned that it is almost certainly a statistical fluke. john roberts is alive and st. petersburg, florida, where he will be reporting today. >> virginia has been hit hard by job losses in the coal industry. saying that the only reason why the unemployment dropped from 8.2% up to 7.8% is because so many people has dropped out of the work force. if it was a real number, it would pr
got rasmussen and sabato. >> that's fine. >> bill: what do you say monday when the first polls come out that will reflect this debate how much of a bump does governor romney get? 5 pointle? 4 -- points, 4 points? >> i think romney will get 6 to 7 points. >> bill: that's big, beckel. >> that's. until the second debate. the second debate when the expectation is on romney to start to deliver something besides what he gave you last night and he did a good job. he is going to have to explain. if you want to beat an incumbent president you have got to do it with somebody. this guy is giving you nobody with substance who can do it. as simple as that i want to get you that fillet minion, bill but it ain't going to happen. >> bill: no you don't: >> stick to tv i will take politics. >> bill: bob beckel three and a half minutes ago you said the polls -- these debates don't mean anything. now you are saying 6 or 7 bumps. cut off as you always do. as you always do. you show me a debate that made a difference in the last 20 years and i will buy you the fillet minion. >> bill: all right, beckel. i
'll talk to the governor then. we are two days away from debate number one. a brand-new rasmussen poll shows many of you can still be persuaded for either candidate. 15% are considered uncommitted. you are open to changing your mind. what about this. good morning to both of you. rich, chris christie predicts a whole new race thursday morning. is it a game changer or not? >> we'll see. one thing i do think in this rasmussen poll goes to this, that people are more persuadable and susceptible to argument and changing their minds than we think. the democratic convention moved the needle in this race because bill clinton went out for 45 minutes and made a case on substance largely against mitt romney and he made it. and romney's 47% remark moved the needle. there is a narrow lead for president obama. so romney needs to make the case affirmatively for his program and why it's better than the president's. this is not just a referendum. this was the romney theory going in. he needs to prove that he's a better choice for the next four years. >> people are still persuadable. 15% is a pretty big
state. and then you got the deviations between rasmussen consistently and some of the other, whether it's quinnipiac or the other ones. that's all we got, though. and we have to talk about them, i guess. i take all of them with such a huge grain of salt. >> well, and joe, there's reason for all of us to take them with a bigger grain of salt than we used to in the past for this reason. it's becoming harder and harder to poll because response rates are down. >> recording. i hang up immediately. they're trying to give me a cruise. do you ever pick up the phone and it's -- and i go no, captain. i don't want to go. >> there are two different questions on the table, joe. one is the accuracy of telephone polling. it's getting harder and harder to do. most pollsters think we're going to move to online. but the second is the exit polls. >> i remember how downtrodden bush was in the afternoon. john kerry -- they were toasting mr. president in boston. >> this is where some of the participation rate questions also come into play. these are in person interviews. people with different views, if they
're going to begin right now with eric rasmussen. >> reporter: both president obama and mitt romney focused on their plans for the economy, and even had a lengthy debate about keeping obamacare. >> reporter: while the first debate started with a friendly greeting, even a mention of the president's 20th wedding anniversary, mitt romney came out swinging on the economy. >> the president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago. that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more. >> are we going to double down on the policies that got us into this mess, or do we embrace a new economic patriotism. >> reporter: romney often looked directly at the president who instead addressed most of his responses to the audience, or the moderator. the debate remained sizzled, mitt romney went after the president for green energy, and high profile companies in the bay area. >> you put $90 billion, like 50 years worth of breaks, into solar and wind. i have a friend who say you don't just pick the winners and losers, you pick the losers. >> reporter: the president
results that reflect the response to the debate? >> yes. they will. have you to remember, rasmussen, the poll thaig think is the most accurate, is a moving five-day sample. so if you will take a week before we have the full post debate polling. but there will be other polls. you will see a big shifting in the polls. joining it's retrievable by obama. i don't think you get a second chance to make a first impression. and i think that romney really scored. i thought when he explained to people that tax cut on the rich would not be on the rich, it was a tax increase on the rich, it was a tax increase on small business employers and they employ 50% of the american workforce. by raising their taxes, you are undermining their ability to create be jos. that was brilliant. i thought that really, he took away, all kinds of arguments from obama. while obama can wait until the performance wears off and people forget how stumbling and hesitant and detached he was, what will remain is the ground that he ceded to romney. >> greta: i thought it was significant that 67 million people watched this, t
rasmussen admitted the killings of about 50 troops so far this year by afghan have damaged the relationship between the international forces and afghan police and military. in the meantime, the u.s. has all but written off working out a peace deal with the taliban. we are joined by by afghan haves to talk about this. she has written several books on afghanistan. welcome to democracy now! 2000, the number of u.s. soldiers killed in afghanistan. >> there is a question of when the actual milestone was reached. we are hearing from some media that it was this past weekend. "the new york times" said it was last august. cbs news said it was last june. even when the count gets there is up for grabs, but what is more important, that speaks to the fact that the counting is not the point. the 2000 u.s. soldier is no more or less important than the first for the 17th or the 129th. what is left out of these accounts are the scores of thousands of afghan civilians that have been killed in this war. since the records began to be kept, which was not until 2007, we know 12,996 civilians have been counted by
. rasmussen shows how many people are for the president and how many for mr. mitt romney . rasmussen poll was accurate in 2004 and 8 getting the results according to the track being poll. 43 percent said they are certain to vote for romney and 42 percent certain vote for obama and 15 percent haven't decided . >> gretchen: that's huge. that is a dead heat report to look at the certainty of these people they are voting early right and these people who know in the debates who they will vote for. these debates are for the undecided it is a huge chunk of the population. other than voters turn out of the base. that will turn the election>> eric: that is 10-20 percent of the undisguisable and persuadable. throw that poll up one more second. in the bottom of that. likely voters. those are the polls that are most accurate and go after the likely voters . not just people who poll random people. >> steve: you and i talked about george washington university. they do a battle ground poll . barak 49 percent x. romney 47. and now he leads by 4 in the independents which is a better number for the former
i think he should keep doing it. >> bill: okay. rasmussen has him pretty much tied if you have the margin of error put in. >> that's mind boggling. >> bill: the point is well taken. with the press rooting for the president and with the money that the president has on attack ads for romney still to be close but the problem is in places like ohio and falling behind and ba ba ba ba ba. everybody thinks i'm crazy. down the line. rove, kirsten powers. leslie marshall, the whole bunch. i come out and show a little emotion. you know what? i hope americans know how bad this country, what kind of shape we are in now. i hope they understand that here the economy is awful and overseas they don't know what they are doing over there i just think that that would work with the independents. and everybody says oh no, no, no, no, no. he has to come in and very senatorial. i don't know. i don't know if that's going to cut it tonight. >> listen, i don't think he has ever been a senator. has he? >> senatorial is a word, miller. it's a word --ward of the day. >> he can't bring that video up and he
to a new rasmussen poll. in ohio, president obama is leading romney by 1 percentage point n. virginia, governor romney leads 49-48%. in florida, governor romney leads by 2 percentage points. 49-47. all three are in the markin of error, but they do show gains by governor romney. it appear hes got a bounce? >> he got somewhat of a bounce. this is like a great wave, greta it's vitally important, i think we are not going to see how far the wave rolls up the beach until the polls are taken postdeigate -- post-debate, especially in ohio, if he's tied then or ahead in ohio, after that, and virginia and florida, it is a brand-new ballgame. in ohio, i think that's the critical state and the toughest one for the governor. >> greta: what is interesting about this year, compared to 8 years ago or farther back, the early voting's already started. even if he did well now, he has a chance of getting good numbers off tonight. of course, if he gets clobbered in the next debate, he may not feel the pain, if people change their minds. >> that's what is really crucial. early voting was taking place when
will you please every single tracking poll. >> again, chris, if you look at rasmussen over the last week, there's been days when they're neck and neck. you look across the board, it's very close. >> i'm on the phone and i can tell you the polling numbers off the top of my head, you are wrong. in ohio, he's down. in virginia, he's down. tell me the battleground states where governor romney is ahead. tell me the one. >> in ohio, he's within the margin of error. in florida, he's within the margin of error. and again, if it's such a horrific campaign, and you know a lot about horrific campaigns, then he wouldn't be as close as he is. going back to the point about scratching beneath the surface, mitt romney was the one that went over and over again through specifics. president obama couldn't go anywhere near his own record. and you know why, because he's failed for four years. he's got nothing to talk about. all president obama could talk about is mitt romney's plan because he doesn't have any plan of his own. all he keeps talking about is how badly mitt romney would do, not how well he's don
? speakable last rasmussen was obama up by one point. other polls with a different spread, but this is going to be up to the debate. this is a key state, will come down to ohio again. romney needs to ohio to win. tracy: he certainly does. here in cleveland once again, how many? speak of those who have to drive around in town get annoyed with it, but we like it because they are here and up in this state. liz: it is so nice to see you, thank you for not revealing some of those stories. i am a real journalist, a peabody award winning journalist. thank you. thank you very much. >> congratulations with everything. >liz: thank you very much. coming up in the next couple of hours we have the mayor of cleveland, frank jackson, he's a democrat. also a republican working together to make this the fourth highest state for job creation. used to be 48. how did that happen? coming up. back to you guys. tracy: i think you and bill could do the fox affiliate in cleveland. liz: he would outshine me, he always did. tracy: good stuff, thank you very much. we will see the next hour of "markets now." mitt romney
